Legends of Southern France Tasting at Roberson Wine Merchants - All wines

Tasting notes by Adam Lechmere.

Robersons, in Kensington High Street, is one of London's most dynamic specialist wine shops, with a varied and fascinating list. It runs regular tastings - with renowned winemakers and producers such as Anthony Barton of Château Leoville Barton - and with the well-informed in-house tasting team. This was a relaxing, informative and fun evening, with Mark Andrew, one of the buying team, providing just the right amount of serious commentary, and fielding a good deal of questions from the dozen or so participants. I can't see how Robersons makes money from such tastings – they cost £50 a head, but then the wines are typically expensive and in this case mostly extremely rare.
